Speaking on ‘Youth at crossroads’ during the centenary celebrations of Communist Party of India leader BV Kakkilaya in Mangalore, Kumar was asked by a member of the audience why he doesn’t stand for ‘one nation, one party’.

The female student who asked him the question began her question with a ‘Jai Shri Ram’, however Kanhaiya said, “Where I come from we say Sita-Ram”.

“There’s only one nation, India is one but the one constitution that represents the country has more than 300 articles. And to even reprent that one nation in the parliament there are two houses — Lok Sabha and Rajya Sabha”, Kanhaiya told the gathering, to loud applause.

The segment in which he explains the meaning of ‘unity in diversity’ is going viral on social media sites.
